  • Description



    My name is Fiona, and on behalf of the entire family here at the hostel, we welcome you to Myanmar, to Inle Lake, and to our home.

    We opened in Novemer 2015, to foster a community of safety, joy, and discovery; a “home away from home” where anyone from around the world can comfortably relax, exchange ideas, and share experiences.

    Use one of our complimentary bikes to explore the local Shan villages, discover the beauty of Inle Lake during a boat tour, enjoy sunset happy hour on our rooftop lounge, and then retreat into one of our spacious and comfortable capsule-style beds, which feature privacy curtains, lockers, power outlets and reading lights.

    We can't wait to welcome you!
